FRIDAY THE 13TH FLASHLIGHT TOURS


Since her death, millions of people have visited her home and many report the sightings of ghosts. Was the house built solely as a monument to the dead or do the phantoms Sarah communed with in life, or perhaps Sarah herself, still lurk nightly in the maze-like corridors of the Winchester Mystery House™?

The tradition of Sarah Winchester’s bizarre legacy continues...

Tickets for special events are available in advance online.
Special 65 minute Flashlight Tours of the Winchester Mansion are given every Friday the 13th and on select evenings in October. You'll tour the rambling, mysterious mansion at night with only the moonlight, a souvenir flashlight, and your imagination to provide illumination through the bewildering maze of rooms and stairways. But watch your back, Sarah could be waiting around any turn. This is one open house you’ll never forget.

With admission, also enjoy extra entertainment on the estate from awe-inspiring magicians, to balloon artists, to caricature illustrators! Entertainment varies per evening, all entertainment is included in the cost of your ticket - limited availability, first come, first served on items such as caricature art.



Buy your tickets early!

Due to the popularity of the Flashlight Tours, we highly recommend you purchase your tickets ahead of time. Friday the 13th tickets go on sale approximately 1 month in advance of the event. This event WILL sell out and when it does, tickets will not be available at Box Office on the night of the event.

AMAZING FACTS

Mrs. Winchester never slept in the same bedroom two nights in a row, in order to confuse any evil spirits that might be waiting for her. At the very center of the house is the Blue Room, where Mrs. Winchester supposedly would go every night to commune with the spirits. This room consisted of a cabinet, a table with pen and papers, a closet, and a planchette board – used for transmitting messages from the beyond. Legend has it that she would wear one of 13 special colored robes and receive guidance from various spirits for her construction plans.
